In light of recent education reforms, Brazil is currently considering a series of changes to the purpose and design of its Basic Education Assessment System (Sistema de Avaliação da Educação Básica, SAEB), which has been a critical source of information about student learning outcomes for the past 30 years. To inform these discussions, the OECD was invited to review a set of policy proposals for reforming the current SAEB so that it more closely aligns with Brazil's new learning standards and provides data to support a range of education actors - from the classroom to the ministry - in their efforts to raise educational performance and reduce inequalities. The findings from this OECD Review are set out in this policy perspective.
